Merry Monday #31 & Freshly Made #51

For the Fred She Said Surprise Blog Hop click here or scroll down.  For the Friday Mashup, please scroll down once.

Yep, I have two different cards for two different challenges, and both cards feature purple:)  First up is Merry Monday #31, here is their sketch:

Here is my card, you can click on it to make it larger:

I used a Fred She Said pre colored Christmas Flower Sheet.  It comes in several different colors and designs.  The circle sentiment and the purple snowflake paper actually came from another FSS set called Candle Glow Christmas Flower Set.  The paper is actually blue, I asked for permission to change it to purple in my Photo Shop program.

I used Stampin’ Up! cardstock, Pale Plum and Wild Wasabi, also Wild Wasabi ribbon.  The embossing folder is also Stampin’ Up! called Petals A Plenty, I love it!  Supply list will be below.

For my second card, I’m posting it to Freshly Made cards challenge #51. Here’s their sketch for this week:

Here’s my card, you can click on it to make it larger:

I used two different FSS sets for this card too.  I used Halloween Rosey   pre colored and the Paper from Halloween Emma the Cat.   I used StampinUp!  Lavendar Lace (retired), and hard as it may be to believe, I ran out of Basic Black and had to use generic black.  I used a punch from Martha Stewart to make the spider web, and a little spider from my stash.      

I hope you like my cards today:)   Thanks for coming by:)
